Light the Night (2021) s01e07 Episode Script

Episode 7

Do you want this?
So you want it then?
Thank you.
Okay, thank you.
Sorry, let me look for my library card.
Use mine.
Thank you.
Remember to return it on time.
Don't make me get fined.
Why are the lights off?
Gosh! I'm going to be late for work!
Forget it. It's too late.
The door is closed.
The door is closed?
What should we do?
I often wait
for the librarian to leave.
Then the library is ours.
No one will bother us.
We can do whatever we want
and read whatever book we want.
I just returned
this book this morning.
Hello, I'm Chiang Han.
I know.
You borrowed a book for me.
I'm Su Ching-yi.
Nice to meet you.
- Fried dumplings.
- Okay.
Didn't you order too much food?
I didn't sleep all night.
That's when I get really hungry.
Are those involved in plays
so over the top?
- Over the top?
- Yes.
I'm just enjoying the moment.
There are so many fucked up things
in this world.
I'm planning to enjoy
and hang onto
every little happiness I can.
Ma'am, I'm out of soy milk.
I were to settle down with someone,
I would choose Lo Yu-nung.
Lo Yu-nung.
Lo Yu-nung.
You choose Lo Yu-nung!
Godmother, I'm coming in.
Godmother, you got
the wrong stuff earlier.
Stay still. I'll call an ambulance.
Godmother, I'm Tzu-wei.
Keep talking to her.
Keep talking.
I'm Tzu-wei.
Keep talking to her.
I owe you too much.
I owe you too much.
Very good. Keep her conscious.
We switched our stuff.
I got your heels.
My classmate came by earlier.
He thought I bought those heels.
In case I'm gone,
you have to take good care of yourself.
Don't speak nonsense.
I'm here. You're going to be okay.
I'm glad you're here.
Luckily, in my world,
I still have you.
You'll be fine.
Don't think too much.
- Miss.
- Godmother!
- Godmother!
- Be careful.
Godmother, wake up.
Godmother, I'm Tzu-wei!
Godmother, wake up!
Where are you going?
Come here.
I told you not to come to my workplace.
Let me ask you.
If I don't come here,
where should I go?
You just want money.
Why else would I be here?
Why is this all?
I mean,
can you not include
the interest for next month first?
Are you kidding me?
I've already paid in advance
everything I can.
If you force me this way,
I'll be half-dead.
Even if you're half-dead,
I'll still take the payment.
I'm telling you.
Next month,
if you don't pay me the difference,
I'll really kill you.
What about Ah-chi?
She was just opening drinks
for her customers instead of helping.
Great timing.
You're not around when there's a meeting.
You show up when you're on the topic.
The meeting is over, right?
I'll get changed first.
What do you mean?
Do you know what we discussed?
Does it matter?
Aren't we just supposed to do as you say?
We've had customers complaining
about bad attitudes.
Maybe it's because Hana isn't here.
As you know, everyone's busy.
Ms. Rose knows
that we have a lot of work these days.
So she encourages everyone
to stay passionate while working.
We can do this.
What's your decision
about becoming a hostess?
I've thought about it seriously.
But I really can't drink.
Ya-ya, you'll entertain customers too?
I don't know.
What do you think?
It's your decision.
A Japanese pub hostess
relies on life experience and substance.
Youth alone
can't make customers stay.
Hana will be back soon.
Think about it carefully.
Ms. Rose, Tzu-wei is looking for you.
Room 623, turn left at the corner.
Okay, thank you.
How's your godmother?
She's fine now.
Go home first.
You have school tomorrow.
Hold on.
Here, take a taxi.
- Be careful.
- Okay.
Go home.
Where's Tzu-wei?
I sent him home.
Does that look in your eyes mean
that you've forgiven me?
My forgiveness
is not worth exchanging your life for.
Your forgiveness?
Chiang Han dumped me.
That was fast, right?
Laugh if you want to.
Treat it as my punishment.
Before he left,
he told me
that if he had to pick someone
to be with forever,
it would be you.
It's not me.
Is a man worth doing this to yourself?
Didn't you go to jail for a man too?
Do you remember when I said
that the one who dies is immortalized?
I even failed in dying for a man.
In this life,
I'm doomed to lose to men.
You really don't have
I don't need your pity.
There's no need.
I'm tired.
Let's spare each other, okay?
Please go.
Please leave.
Glasses, let's go.
- Let's go.
- Wen-cheng, it's a no.
It can't be done here.
What's his condition?
Fuck, I thought
it was wisdom teeth extraction.
Give me your hand.
Give it to me.
- Come on.
- What?
Come here!
Go away!
What a lousy elevator. Fuck!
Don't come near me.
What a coincidence.
What are you doing here?
Is this the time to ask me that?
Right. What's going on?
What the hell?
First floor!
Back off.
Don't hurt the hostage.
Come here. Let's switch.
What are you trying to pull?
It's easier to escape near the door.
What are you doing?
Fuck. My legs are sore. Can't I squat?
Fuck you!
Fuck you!
- Fucking run again!
- Wen-cheng.
Wen-cheng, that's enough.
- Fuck!
- Wen-cheng, stop.
That's enough, Wen-cheng.
Don't move.
- You deserve it.
- You said you had gastroenteritis.
Did you know
that his knife was on my throat?
How dare you lunge at me then?
Are you hurt?
How does it feel
to beat someone badly?
I've been thinking about
beating someone badly lately.
The dilemma is that
even if I want her
to die because I hate her so much,
but when something happens to her,
I want to seek justice for her.
Is it Ms. Sue?
Only good friends like you and her
will have those twisted thoughts.
You want her to die,
but you want to seek justice for her.
To be honest,
for someone like you,
do what you want to do.
If you keep it bottled up inside,
you'll get sick.
What the heck?
This can reduce your anger.
Where are you going?
I'm still working.
Is Mr. Nakamura here to see Ms. Sue?
Ah-chi said she'll entertain him today.
Don't block my way to happiness.
Mr. Nakamura.
You must be hungry.
I waited in line
for a long time to buy this.
It has been a while
since I've had their braised dish.
Thank you for the food.
It's too bad.
I won't be able
to taste Taiwanese food much anymore.
Then try this one.
This taste
Does it have the taste you long for?
I've asked a lot of chefs
before I got the recipe you mentioned.
Your wife is amazing.
I thought that once she left,
I'll never be able to eat it again.
I can learn everything you like
and make it for you.
Thank you.
Mr. Nakamura, I was the one
who drank with you
when you first came here, remember?
I do.
You drank so happily that day.
You even told me
that I look a lot like your late wife.
I drank too much that day indeed.
I didn't expect you to remember something
from so many years ago.
I remember everything you said.
Mr. Nakamura.
I can try to be like her for you.
I know
that you're doing all of this for me.
I appreciate it.
Thank you.
Don't look at me like that.
I'm not here to bother you.
I know,
or you'd have come a long time ago.
I can just talk to you by the door.
Is it about Ching-yi?
She killed herself.
She's not dead.
She's in the hospital now.
Then there's no problem.
Why did you come to see me?
Don't tell me
Don't tell me
that you want me to go back to her.
Can you not act this way?
This isn't you.
And why?
Because she's your best friend?
- Or
- Because I still love you!
But I don't want to love you anymore.
I don't know when I can do it.
I tell myself every day that I'll be fine.
I'm begging you, okay?
You've already hurt me so much.
Don't do this to her.
Don't expect anything from me.
Because I can't give it to you.
You seem fine.
What are you doing here?
Lo Yu-nung
came to see me last night.
Why did she go
to see you?
I can't do what she wants me to do.
But I thought
that I should come to see you.
In the end, she had to go and see you
before you would come.
She pities me.
Excuse me.
Do you know how to get to Magang Street?
- This way.
- Go that way.
Okay, thank you.
- Okay.
- Okay?
Walk that way.
- From Yes.
- Up this slope.
This way.
- Thank you.
- Okay.
- Doesn't she feel hot wearing that?
- I don't know.
Why are you here?
If I don't come,
are you never planning to return?
What are you doing?
"First place in Reading Contest,
second place
- in Chinese Declamation Contest."
- That was when
- I was young.
- "Helpful model student."
This looks like an award you'll win.
Stop looking at them.
Ms. Lo, I'm sorry.
You came too suddenly.
We didn't prepare anything.
I randomly made these just now.
Just eat a little bit.
Mrs. Li, you're too kind. These are a lot.
No. I'm still busy in the kitchen.
I'll make more.
- You don't have to.
- Have a seat.
- There's more.
- Please sit down.
I'm sorry.
You're eating before the guest.
Women should be more reserved.
So is your company's renovation completed?
- Yes, the renovation.
- Renovation?
In the western liquor business,
you speak with foreigners, right?
It's not easy.
Western liquor business.
Yes, that's right.
Would you usually drink a lot?
- I
- No.
We rarely drink alcohol.
We'll only taste new liquor.
We usually work with client orders.
Mr. Li, don't worry.
We don't like drinking.
- That's good.
- Don't worry.
Liquor isn't good.
Girls shouldn't drink if you can, okay?
Yes, Dad.
I'll get her mom to make some sweet soup.
We can eat grass jelly later.
No need, Mr. Li. Come and eat with us.
I would feel embarrassed.
Don't be shy. Eat first.
A western liquor import business?
Make some sweet soup later.
They won't understand that.
- If I tell them too much, they'll worry.
- I know.
Aren't you afraid that I would worry?
You left a letter and disappeared.
Do you think I'll spare you?
How many weeks have you been resting?
What exactly happened? Tell me.
Isn't it better without me?
What are you talking about?
Ms. Sue came to see me.
She gave me some money.
She told me
not to work there.
She told me
to have a change of environment
and a new start.
That would be better for me too.
You rarely go home.
I took you away once I got there.
Won't your parents be sad?
They should be happy.
I'm doing western liquor
import business with foreigners.
Did you give up your lease?
So I'll have to bother you
and Tzu-wei for a few days.
I'll find a place soon.
You should just move in with me.
It's just me and Tzu-wei.
It's fine as long
as you don't find him bothersome.
Does Ms. Sue know
that you came to see me?
Don't worry.
I told you I got your back.
Here are the noodles.
- Thank you, sir.
- Thank you, sir.
What would you like, ma'am?
Just pork balls soup.
- Okay, take a seat.
- It's Ah-chi.
It's coming right up.
Whose is this?
These are the cosmetics
I'm giving to Ya-ya.
Have you decided to do it?
I haven't really decided yet.
Didn't I tell you to practice first?
You'll need it someday.
Here, pork balls soup.
It's hot. Be careful.
Thank you.
Ah-chi, that's all you're eating?
I'm on a diet because I gained weight.
Who are you dieting for?
For the lottery?
What does it have to do with you?
Instead of betting on the lottery,
it's better to bet on Mr. Nakamura.
If I were you,
I would have slept with him already.
You always look like
the "good wife and mother" type.
Even I am tired of it.
Everyone at Light knows
that Ms. Sue stole Mr. Nakamura from you.
He's going back to Japan now.
If you don't hurry, you'll regret it.
Aiko, don't say that.
Why? Can't I tell the truth?
She's old. How long can she work there?
If she doesn't retire in a few years,
will the Mamasans keep her?
Are you done?
Aren't your noodles dry?
Have it with soup.
I don't want food with your saliva.
I'm back.
Hana, sit here.
Why did you only order one side dish?
Are you on a diet?
I can drink for a lifetime.
- It has been a hard day today.
- I'm so tired.
What did you do today?
Mr. Kase.
- Mr. Yoshida, Mr. Mitsui.
- Ms. Hana.
- It has been a while.
- It has been a while, Ms. Hana.
Yuri, I got this.
- I'm so happy.
- You steal customers once you're back.
No, someone at the bar asked for you.
- How about a drink together?
- Of course.
- Drink up.
- I'm happy.
The girl has been switched to another.
What brings you here?
If you can come to my workplace,
of course I can come to yours.
What a rare visitor.
Hi, Ms. Rose.
I want an El Dorado of 35 years.
- Okay. Hsiao-hao.
- Yes.
An El Dorado of 35 years.
Yes, right away.
Take your time.
- Entertain him well.
- Okay.
Why order such an expensive drink?
I'm happy.
I should get something you like
since I'm rarely here.
I'll help with your sales too.
Thank you, sir.
Where's the other Mamasan today?
Why are you suddenly asking about her?
So that's why you're here.
How much are the goods worth?
And how much is this liquor worth
compared to it?
If something is taken away,
don't you think we should get it back?
Ms. Sue should also know
how much the goods are worth.
It must still be here.
What are you planning to do?
- Someday in time
- Someday in time
- Just like a ruined face
- Just like a ruined face
- It's hard to say goodbye
- It's hard to say goodbye
- Let it all go
- Let it all go
You can't do that.
- That's not an easy thing to do
- That's not an easy thing to do
- Hi.
- But none of us cried
- Let it come quietly
- Please don't do that.
Did Mr. Nakamura make reservations today?
- This way.
- Yes, 9:30 p.m.
Why isn't he here yet?
Where have you been all night?
Something came up.
What is it?
- We have a full house tonight.
- Okay, I'm sorry.
- Welcome.
- Welcome.
- Ma'am.
- I'm looking for Wang Ai-lien.
- She even has a Japanese name.
- Mr. Oda?
Please get up.
Ms. Aiko.
Get your filthy hands off!
Come out!
Excuse me.
Is this the bubble tea place
you work part-time in?
I'm Wang Ai-lien's mom.
- Mrs. Wang.
- It hurts.
- I'm sorry. We work here.
- It's her mom.
- Can this wait?
- I'm disciplining my daughter.
Please move.
Wang Ai-lien.
Come home with me now!
I'm still working.
Say that again.
I said I'm still working.
Let's talk after work.
What kind of work is this?
Men touch you and lie on your lap.
Have you no shame?
- You're a college student.
- Mrs. Wang.
- Why stoop so low?
- Mrs. Wang.
- Don't touch me!
- I'm very sorry.
- I'm sorry.
- If it weren't for these photos,
I wouldn't know about your disgusting job.
You wanted to move out and be independent.
This is what you do?
Mrs. Wang, if you
Go away!
If I knew you were going
to embarrass our family,
I'd have asked your dad
to take you to the States.
Shut up, old woman!
I'm not paying
to see an old woman go crazy!
- What did you say? What's it to you?
- Are you done?
Stop embarrassing yourself, Mom.
Am I the one embarrassing myself,
or are you?
I'm warning you,
if you don't come home with me,
don't ever come back!
I have no daughter like you!
Fine. I don't want to go back anyway!
Wang Ai-lien.
- Wang Ai-lien, come back!
- Mrs. Wang.
- Mrs. Wang.
- Let's talk outside.
- Okay?
- Fine, I'll pretend I never had you!
From now on,
I don't have a filthy daughter like you!
Let me go!
I can leave by myself.
I told you.
I didn't do it.
Then it's her?
Whoever it is,
that's your problem to deal with.
I run a bar, not a school.
Your family affairs
have nothing to do with me.
Since it wasn't you,
I'll find the culprit myself.
What are you planning to do?
She went to so much trouble
to get rid of me.
She even made my mom come here.
This is my last day then.
Pay me my wages.
Do parting without hard feelings exist
in this world?
Since we're parting,
no one should be happy.
How did you get in here?
What do you want to do?
What do I want?
I don't know either.
Haven't you seen her recently?
I went to see her at the bar last month.
I thought she'd come home afterward.
I didn't expect her
to not contact us anymore.
Didn't you try to find her?
After about a week,
I went to find her at the place she rents.
But she moved out.
And she quit school too.
I don't even know where she could be.
Could something has happened to her?
